Both properties are open to the public. To visit these properties, follow the Linear Park north from Route 42 (North Brooksvale Road). Tow Path Acres is on the left, immediately north of the road. It's a very narrow property, so best just viewed from the bike path. The start of the old trail at the Cran Memorial Preserve is about 1/3 mile north, just before a wooden bridge. A small stone and plaque mark the spot. The trail is currently unmarked.
